Coral is found in the Mediterranean Sea, Sea of Japan, Canary Isles and the Bay of Biscay. The most valuable of the varieties is red coral. Only the calcified external skeleton of this sea creature (genus Corallium) is used in jewelry. Coral has been highly prized, worn in jewelry and used as an amulet or talisman since before the time of Egypt. Many who use coral in this way believe that it can relieve melancholy and excessive worry.

Coral works on the layer of energy that lies close to the physical body. This layer is comprised of the vibrations or life essence, emitted by the body's cells. Coral helps one in their ability to cleanse, strengthen, repair and rebuild the structure that houses their life essence.
